Holiday Photo for Boston Gourmet Chefs

 

For the second year, we were invited by Boston Gourmet Chefs to take a photo for their holiday card. This year's theme was the 1920's. The goal was to send a message to their clients to celebrate with the company this holiday season,  showcasing their products. To achieve this, we researched the photography style and lighting from the era. The set up was designed as if they were together in a party with their clients. The four of them were posed around the table while enjoying  a glass of champagne. We illuminated the table from above with a softbox with a grid. Then, we illuminated  the four of them using three more lights with grids to avoid light spilling to the walls. We needed to focus on the people as well as the food. . Therefore in post production, we decided to separate the two things we needed to show by giving the photo an effect with grain and sepia colors to show some age to them. And we left the table with food with natural colors, This allowed the viewer to focus on both the people and the beautiful hors devours well.
